Hollywood Bowl Overlook

A great place to take out of town visitors on a sunny day. Visitors can get a great view of the LA basin and Hollywood.

This is an iconic venue for some great summer out door concerts. Perfect venue to hear some of world's best performers.

The Hollywood Bowl Overlook is located almost at the end of Mulholland Drive, quite near the Route 101. The views of Downtown LA and the Hollywood Sign are pretty good from here. There is a small parking down the overlook.

This stop was a lot of fun. We walked around and got to take pictures. I suggest you go to the bathroom. It was very nice.

If you want to have a beautiful view of the city of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign, take a ride up to the overlook. It is a beautiful park that does require you to be able to climb some stairs to get to the top of the overlook to see the Hollywood sign. The lower part offers a nice... More

Interesting vantage point from which to view the Hollywood Bowl, but wouldn't be very good for seeing any performances (although we used to climb up through the underbrush before this area was turned into the overlook, and see concerts for free).

This is great place to view LA in the smog. It is quite small and the parking can get busy especially if a coach visits but it is well worth the time to see the view.

Great view of Hollywood. Hollywood sign and bowl. Nice overlook to take it all in and relax. Not much parking, but if take tour, it's a main stop.
